It will take years to restore the Dnieper hydroelectric station, they said in Kyiv

MOSCOW, March 25 Restoration of the Dnieper hydroelectric power station will take several years, said the General Director of Ukrhydroenergo Igor Sirota, his words were quoted by the Espresso TV channel.

"A superficial review makes it clear that it will take years to restore (Dneprohydroelectric power station – editor's note) to the state of the design solution. We will not be able to quickly restore this station,” he said.

According to Sirota, clearing out the rubble and dismantling the destroyed ceilings is currently underway; this may take a week. Only after this will it be possible to talk about the consequences for the hydroelectric power station, he added. The head of Ukrhydroenergo emphasized that there were “many hits on the units themselves, the equipment burned out, that is, there is a lot of work.”

“Today it is not yet possible to estimate in time and financially. There are units that need completely from scratch, which will take from 18 to 24 months,” Sirota noted.
He also added that it will be necessary to completely restore the turbine room and assess the situation on the four lower floors of the station.

Last Friday, the Russian armed forces launched a massive missile and drone attack on energy facilities and the military-industrial complex of Ukraine. Sirota then reported that the upper part of the Dneproges building was completely destroyed after the shelling, but there was no threat of a dam breakthrough.
The head of Ukrenergo, Vadim Kudrytsky, in turn, said that the energy system of Ukraine had undergone the largest attack “of all time.” According to him, the combined attacks hit a number of thermal and hydroelectric power plants in the country. Emergency and emergency power outages have been introduced in a number of regions.

Dnieper Hydroelectric Power Station is the largest hydroelectric power station on the Dnieper River in the city of Zaporozhye. This is the fifth stage of the Dnieper cascade of hydroelectric power stations, it was built back in Soviet times.

The Russian military is striking at Ukrainian infrastructure: energy facilities, defense industry, military command and communications. Presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov emphasized that the army in battles with the Ukrainian Armed Forces does not hit residential buildings and social facilities.
